California/CARB map?
« on: January 12, 2013, 06:32:44 PM »
Just wondering if the California bikes use different maps from what is shown on the TuneECU website? Since it appears CA bikes have a charcoal canister and some sort of valving to vent it to the intake tract.

Thanks

No Joe,  What you se on TuneECU is what you get.  You just have the canister and associated gubbins

Thanks, didn't want to load the wrong map and muck things up.

Even that could be difficult as the ecu looks at the map's checksum.

Good to know, I may not even need to touch it but, I got the TuneECU and cable so I can make sure I have the most current map. My bike was a factory demo, run by an exec for a couple months so no telling if they loaded the most current map before it went up for sale.

All North American bikes have the charcoal canister.  I ditched mine.

Out of interest, what's the downside of having it on there?   Does it sap power?

No, it takes no power. If it gets plugged up you will have fueling problems.  It just adds a little weight is all and it is really useless.

What did you do with the hoses? The hose that goes to the intake has a servo operated valve of some sort, does it set a code if removed?

I plugged the hose that goes to the valve. I left the hose that goes to the fuel tank unplugged.  Later, when I took the tank off, I removed that valve and hose.  To answer your question, it does not throw a code.  I checked with a Triumph tech before I messed with it.
